Fantastic little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 night break. The cottage was very clean, our private hot tub fantastic, and we may as well have had our own private pool as we were the only ones in it. Great value for money and we'll definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks Julie, I expected better from you, as you know we kept your bond because you burnt our new hot tub cover with a cigarette. I asked you to come and have a look at it but you declined and tried to stop the card payment. Disgraceful behavior you should be ashamed. We have had over 12,000 happy guests and only 5 incidents of reckless damage like this, would you do this on your furniture ? Our feedback is 99.9% excellent with guests returning time after time. Look at all the 5 star reviews.

5 family week long break!

  • 5 of 5

Great facilities, hot tub and pool was a hit. Family friendly. Splendid views! Lovely walks. Nearby village has all you need. Log burners make it really cosy. Kitchen well equipped. Warm and clean cottages. Ideal for a family get away! Kids and adults had a great time! Going back again next year!!!

Amazing, relaxing, great value a real Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we pulled up we were smitten with this place setting is truly beautiful. Opening the door to the cottage we were delighted truly home from home with everything you need and more for your stay. Was relaxing from minute arrived. Later Viv arrived who is truly helpful and friendly and felt more at ease further to enjoy our stay. The pool is amazing we felt like a king and queen when just the two of enjoyed a dip. The hot tub on our patio was also a extra special touch recommend using in daylight and taking in the views. We cannot wait to return and in process of booking our next trip. Value for money defiantly when leaving did not want to leave. Thanks don't change a thing Sara and James
